Procam International announced that the iconic Mumbai Marathon is now – the TATA Mumbai Marathon. The Tata Group will be the title sponsor of Asia’s most prestigious and one of the world’s top 10 marathons. The Tata Mumbai Marathon will be jointly sponsored by the Tata Group and Tata Consultancy Services. The USD 405,000 event, in its 15th edition, will keep its date with runners in Maximum City for the third Sunday of January 2018.
One of the greatest sporting icons, ‘King’ Haile Gebrselassie graced the launch of the event.
My memories from the Mumbai Marathon back in 2013 are nothing but amazing, the passion, the euphoria and magic on that Sunday morning was mesmerizing and I am so happy to be back here today. It’s incredible how a running movement can bring about a positive change in society. It inculcates a sense of pride among citizens and unites everyone for a better civil society. In the last couple of years, I have seen India’s growing influence as a global running destination; the increasing number of races and participants here, is testimony to the growing pool of talent available, and the potential for India to be a force to reckon with in the sport of running,” ‘King’ Haile Gebrselassie.
In keeping up with expectations of the runners, this year, the running places have been increased to 46,000 across six different categories.
It is a proud moment for each one of us to be associated with the Tata Mumbai Marathon, as we celebrate the 15th year of the event. A concept that was launched 15 years ago, has today become a movement across the country. It is a platform that encourages the spirit of giving, as much as it teaches one the joy of living," Mumbai Marathon’s Face of the Event, John Abraham, on his association with the event.
